[Centos] CentOS 3.3 and High Point Raid Cards

We had a RH 7.3 system that we were using highpoint cards in.  That took a
while to get working correctly a year ago or so.  Moving to Centos we were
not able to get them to work correctly so we went with the 3ware 8500 series
(one 4 port and one 2 port) and it is working like a charm.

I think the HPT was a rocketraid 1640.

Good luck if you stick it out with the HPT controller.

I'm using one as an extra ide controller with out using raid on the card.
I just use software raid instead.  I never got it to work in linux.  Tried
to compile the drivers a few times but they always failed.
